About Digestive Wellness
Digestive health is the absolute core to overall wellness, as the gut assimilates and absorbs nutrients from our food so that our bodies can function optimally. It's our first line of defence against external pathogens, it modulates our immune system and if we want to be healthy and stay that way, we must ensure our digestion is sound.
The delicate balance of our digestive system can be disturbed very easily through wrong food choices, stress, lifestyle, medications and environmental factors. Understanding how to restore this balance is one of the most important steps to good health.
In a healthy digestive system gut microbiota are balanced, there is no inflammation of the epithelial cells of the digestive tract, pathogenic bacteria or fungi are minimized and do not cause problems, bowel movements are regular and formed (with no pain or urgency), all foods can be eaten without problem.
Good Digestive Health not only means a healthy digestive system. The benefits impact the whole body in numerous ways including:
Improved and balanced immune system
Improved skin, reduced sensitivity and skin conditions (as the skin is a mirror of the gut and all skin conditions should be treated internally aswell as externally)
Improved mood, energy and feelings of wellbeing
Improved mobility and joint health
In an ideal world digestive issues should not be something to worry about. Unfortunately this is not the case for an increasing number of people, with symptoms varying in their severity and effect on daily life. Therapy Digestivi-T programme is designed to restore digestive health, and has been developed by Registered Nutritional Therapist, Therapy Director and digestive specialist on the link between gut microbiota and wellness, Jacklyn Coldwell-Collins (BAhons Dip CNM mBANT CNHC MAR).
The 'gut brain' has a direct influence on our actual brains. A happy, healthy gut helps us feel happy and healthy (the gut produces serotonin - our feel good hormone).
A happy gut also helps us sleep better, mimicking our sleep cycle, but also interrupting our sleep cycle if the gut is not functioning optimally.
The gut microflora are critical to our health. The biologically active mass has a profound affect on our physiological processes, and is as important to the body as the major organs. The normal person is composed on over 1014 cells. 90% of these cells are microbial, and most live in the gut. Most are good and play an important role in the body, metabolizing nutrients, vitamins, hormones, drugs and carcinogens, synthesizing fatty acids, giving protection against germs and activating the immune system. Others cause disease and are opportunistic.
The nature or ratio of good to bad can change, and this is one of the most important factors we consider during the programme, as an unbalanced microbiome can result in digestive problems, immune deficiencies and compromised health even if the individuals diet is good.
1 x Initial Digestivi-T Nutrition Consultation
2 x Digestivi-T Follow Up Nutrition Consultation
1 x Digestivi-T Organic Stomach Massage Oil
1 x Digestivi-T Blend Tea
The initial nutritional consultation is a detailed session that will investigate the history of triggers to the digestive condition, providing an informative insight to help the client understand the potential root cause, whether functional investigation is recommended and most importantly, an education into how nutrition can be used to help.
Factors affecting the health of the gut are considered. These include symptoms, sensitivities, inflammation, infections, intestinal permeability, gut microbiota, all of which are contributors of digestive health. This is individual to each and every client, hence a personalised wellness plan is created, which will summarise discussions and recommendations from the initial session and be provided to each client within 48 hours of their consultation.
As each person is unique, no digestive programme is the same. Various stages of digestive healing are often required for long term health. The two follow up sessions are recommended to be taken at monthly intervals following the initial consultation. During these sessions, further recommendations will be made to move to the next stage of digestive wellness and will build upon the initial foundations from the first consultation to help achieve optimal digestive health and overall wellness.
A bottle of our Digestivi-T stomach massage oil is included with the programme. This bespoke combination of oils work together to strengthen, support and improve the function of the digestive system. The oil is designed to be massaged into the stomach daily, and can also be massaged into the soles of the feet.
Our Digestivi-T herbal tea is also included and clients are encouraged to drink this on a daily basis. This herbal tea has been formulated to soothe and calm the digestive system and includes Peppermint, Aniseed, Fennel, lemon balm and Rose Hips.
The recommended duration for this programme is 3 months, with one consultation per month.
Associated Functional Nutrition Testing
Note that testing is not always required and is not an essential part of the programme. However, in some cases, functional testing may be recommended as a useful adjunct to assess status of digestive flora and the associated impact to health. Many more tests are available but these are a selection of commonly used digestive tests. During the nutritional consultation process, our therapist will advise on whether any testing is recommended based on an individual case history.
